Children & Baby Eye Care
Glasses for all ages and sizes!
It's cool to be a specs wearer, and we want everyone to have fun choosing their specs!
All of our team will look after you and your child, and make sure you're both happy with your glasses and your vision. If you have any questions our Optometrists will be happy to help you.
Glasses for Children
If your child needs glasses then we will ensure that they enjoy them and are happy with their look. The NHS supply lenses, and we have a huge selection of frames included in the NHS voucher. We constantly have different and up to date styles to choose from. We also have branded frames that you pay a small price for. We encourage children to enjoy the dispensing process, choose their own cases, and spend as much time as they need.
Choosing Frames for Children
If your child is going to be a happy and confident spectacle wearer, we have to make sure that they love their frames and that they fit well so that your child is comfortable in them.
Children have a different facial anatomy to adults. Their faces are rounder with more prominent cheeks, and they have very little bridge to their nose. Obviously they also have very tender skin. This means that frames for children are not just scaled down versions of adult frames, they have to be wider, shallower, and have different bridge fittings.
Children usually need frequent repairs and adjustments, and all of these services are complimentary. If any costs are incurred these are usually covered by the NHS so let them enjoy their glasses and we'll take care of any little mishaps!
The trend for children's frames at present is bold, square plastics, often lined with contrasting colours. Metal frames for children are angular too, in coloured finishes for girls, often with patterned or stripy plastic end tips to give extra interest. For boys there are cool neutral black or silver metals.
We are happy to source products if we do not have what you or your child is looking for. We believe that the entire process of becoming a spec wearer should be positive, so we always go the extra mile to find what you want.
